We spent an afternoon here and were surprised by how much there is to do. The property is fairly small, though very interesting to explore, but the grounds surrounding it make for an equally interesting day out and there are a number of activities laid out for kids, such as pond dipping. The tea room is delightful and the staff... More

We spent a couple of hours here exploring the building and grounds. We highly recommend using the audio guide as you will learn a huge amount that you would otherwise not realise about this place. The tea room had fabulous cream tea and cheese scones too!

A stunningly beautiful place, beautiful grounds, brilliant audio information, we spent a good few hours here and will be coming back again as it was so lovely. Brilliant staff, the National Trust always seem to employ really enthusiastic people to look after their properties. A great day out and well worth a visit

Lyveden New Bield is one of our favourite places, not far from home, so we call in from time to time. The history is fascinating as the owner, who built other properties in the are was related to one of the men involved in the gunpowder plot. This involvement resulted in the family downfall and this property was not finished,... More

Tucked away in rural seclusion is this National Trust gem. The historic house was never finished but has a real presence standing proud looking out over the picturesque countryside. We went on a warm afternoon and sitting in the walled garden enjoying a delicious light lunch of fresh cheese scone served with cream cheese and red onion pickle was an... More

Having been here years ago when it stood on its own in the middle of a field it was a nice surprise to now find it has a café and shop and good parking facilities . The staff were extremely helpful and the young lady present on that day, Thursday 4th August ,deserves praising for her knowledge as well.

This is a National Trust venue, consisting of a small, uncompleted house, lovely surrounding grounds and the usual tea room. There's not much else, so on a less than perfect day it would be a short visit!! It is located in the middle of nowhere, but that is part of it's charm. Great for a walk in the countryside and...

We visited on a beautiful Summer day and filled an afternoon wandering around the grounds. The house is a wonderful curiosity but there really isn't a lot to see. There is an audio tour, which we didn't do, but that might make things a bit more interesting. It's a 10 minute wander at best. What really makes the attraction are... More

As National Trust members who had bunkered down in the area the night before we thought we'd give this little understated location a go. It's a couple of miles drive to get there but you pass through some lovely countryside and on a good day it's a nice place for a family to spend a couple of hours. The volunteers... More
